Hello everyone,

 

Considering purchasing a rooftop cargo carrier for my 2016 MKX and would appreciate everyone's thoughts and experiences with them on an MKX.

 

It will primarily be used for overflow storage of items while driving cross country.

 

I'm not so much concerned about overall cost, but more the quality, functionality, aerodynamics, appearance, security, etc.

 

Also wondering about carriers that properly fit the MKX, allowing the liftgate to open unimpeded, etc.

 

Thanks!

 

Timmer

Hi Everyone,

 

Replying to my own post. - The following info is from lincoln.com accessories page:

 

Cargo Box by Thule - Large
Part No: VET4Z-7855100-B
SRP: $469.00
Get local pricing
Maximum capacity boxes have room for plenty of extra stuff
Dual-side opening for easier loading/ unloading from either side of the vehicle
Quick-Grip™ mounting system for fast, easy, tool-free installation and removal
SecureLock™ ensures that all gear is locked and box is properly closed prior to driving
2 One-Key™ locks secure box contents and lock the box to the roof rack

Maybe this will help others interested in MKX rooftop cargo carries.

I started this topic a while back and thought to share a pic of my 2016 MKX with the Thule rooftop cargo box attached.
 
This is the box available as an accessory through Lincoln.  It is actually a Thule Force - Medium if anyone wishes to research on the Thule website.
 
My better half thinks it looks cool.  If she's happy, I'm happy...
